So the smell of Halloween is beginning to linger in the air of the Buckeye State, or at least at every supermarket you walk into with their Halloween candy displays. But I’m here to tell you about something a whole lot sweeter. Ohio knows it’s fair share of horror; hell, look at all the serial killers we’ve raised. Here’s a small listing of upcoming horror events in Ohio to put a scare in you, no matter what your age or wallet size.
Saturday, September 10th, is the Lorain County Zombie Walk to stop the outbreak of hunger in Lorain County! It’s a great cause with a bit of gore thrown in for good measure. How can you help you ask? Well, by covering yourself in red-dyed Karo syrup and shuffling down the street. Help contribute to the local food bank with your donations and witness what the End of Days may just look like.
Church Street Bar and Grill is the prime location for registration, food donation, and make-up application for participating zombies who need assistance. Along with the food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank in Lorain County we are having Life Share Blood Mobile as the “Vaccination Zone.” So Please make sure you plan to include this as part of your visit during the Walk.
Admission: $5.00 plus 2 non-perishable food items.
Walk Starts Promptly at 3:00PM
Although we encourage you to arrive in full make-up – Don’t worry! We will have several FX Make-up & air brush Artists available starting at 11:00am for an additional fee of $5.00 for those Zombies needing assistance. Make-up application will be located on the outdoor patio @ Church Street Bar & Grill.
Make-up application starts at 11:00am through 2pm.
What to expect from a Zombie Walk you ask??? During the Walk, all participants are encouraged to remain in character as zombies, lurching, shambling, dragging limbs and communicating only in a zombie-like manner (such as grunting, groaning, moaning and slurred calls for “brains”.) Some participants occasionally dress up as soldiers who are called in to contain the outbreak, or survivors who are trying to defend themselves from the onslaught of the zombie hoard. It’s a great fun afternoon while raising awareness for our community and local charity.
Check them on here on FaceBook. And click here for more information about the event. There will be plenty of drinks, a costume contest, and plenty of other trouble to get into for the sake of philanthropy and brain munching.
For those unemployed or looking to raise a little extra cash this September and October, Cedar Point – mostly known for their roller coasters and water park located in Sandusky, OH – is putting on it’s 15th Annual Halloweekend’s Celebration.

But where’s the money, Lebowski? Well, click here to apply for a position at Cedar Point for this 7 week long event. There’s many different opportunities for every kind of skill set.
HalloWeekends: 15 Years of Monster Fun!
Sept. 16-Oct. 30 (Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays)
With outdoor scare zones and haunted houses to live entertainment and themed children’s attractions, HalloWeekends, Cedar Point’s annual fall festival of frights and fun, will haunt the peninsula for the 15th year. HalloWeekends combines the park’s unmatched collection of rides and roller coasters with a broad assortment of Halloween attractions that have made it a Halloween tradition for many families. You know what else is SCARY? All of this is FREE WITH ADMISSION!
Four haunted houses, five tremendously terrifying nighttime attractions, special entertainment and decorations, a parade and lots of daytime fun for kids.
The gig runs for 7 weeks and I can’t think of a better way to spend my weekends making money. Well, ones that don’t involve a stripper pole anyway. Hurry up and apply today.
And you damn well better not have forgotten about Cinema Wasteland either! This year in Strongsville, OH they are doing a special tribute to the Baron of Body Horror, Frank Henenlotter and in audience will be many of the stars of his various films. There will be screenings galore, rubbing of elbows with local film makers, schwigity-schwag to drool over & buy and plenty of fun to be had over all three days running September 30th- October 2nd. And be sure to be on the look out for several Blood Sprayer knuckle-draggers, I mean writers, making the scene. Also Chris Seaver from Low Budget Pictures has some goodies to reveal concerning Warlock Home Video. I’m particularly looking forward to this little gem…
